: clinton returns for one last time tomorrow to introduce john kerry at his confirmation hearing to be the next secretary of state. a much happier occasion. today was so ferocious at times that one republican senator on the committee later accused clinton of faking her emotion. a sign that her critics may try to make benghazi an issue if clinton does decide to run for president, brian. >> what a day it was on capitol hill. andrea mitchell starting us off from washington. andrea, thanks. >>> all of this brings us to our chief foreign correspondent, richard engel, in the studio. at one point the secretary just kind of waved her hand today to indicate the whole region of the middle east as something we should have our eyes on. as you know, all too well, it's a tinder box. what do you have your eyes on right now? >> in regards to this testimony, i think she was highlighting the problems in north africa. and it really goes down to weapons. when gadhafi was falling, i was there at the time, i had never seen so many weapons in my entire life. and they were just being taken from depots,

. i understand we'll welcome you one more time when you come tomorrow to introduce senator kerry to the committee. we'll look forward to welcoming you there as well. i think that there are several takeaways here that are incredibly important. one is that we have to look at the totality of the threat environment versus just looking for a specific credible threat when we are thinking about the protection of our foreign service personnel. and i see that we are moving in that direction. the other one is that changes in the department have clear lines of authority. and responsibility for security matters instead of silos and looking more in a horizontal nature and i understand that's underway. secretary gates used to famously argue that there are more people in military bands than in the entire foreign service. it seems to me that surely we can find the funds to protect our diplomats who serve on the front lines. and i am concerned when the arb says that the state department has been engaged for years in a struggle to obtain the resources necessary to carry out its work. and that has
kerry is seen as a shoo-in to replace secretary clinton. at defense, after bob gates and panetta, the president's pick of chuck hagel sends a similar message. he is republican but the past statements on israel and iran as well as his opposition to the troop surge in iraq will likely make for a heated confirmation process. if confirmed, he will most likely lead major budgetary belt tightening at the pentagon. >> this is a president looking for what they used to say about eisenhower, against on the cheap. using drones, using intelligence in new way anything but to send troops into a foreign war. >> in the second term many analysts look for one last big push, perhaps immigration reform. with a growing latino vote adding additional pressure on both parties ahead of 2016 and others feel the time has passed for big bold moves. douglas brinkley said the gridlock in washington is very real and the president has to wake up every day determined not to be a lame duck president. and the inner team obama, he has had more chiefs of staff than any other president in history and with the next ch
